Vettel dominated proceedings for most parts, leaving nothing to chance. He was 32. 6 seconds faster than the second-placed Fernando Alonso in his Ferrari.
Vettel's victory was his third in a row in Singapore, his seventh of the season and 33rd of his career, moving him out of a tie with Alonso.
Third-placed Kimi Raikkonen also had a good race but could not challenge the might of the German ahead.
In fact, the only time Vettel lost the lead was in the first corner - to Nico Rosberg - before running wide on turn two.
A safety car period also hurt Rosberg's chances after Daniel Ricciardo bumped his car on turn 18. Rosberg and his Mercedes partner finished 4th and 5th respectively.
